World’s First Re-Use & Reduce Healthcare Sharps Trolley.
Healthcare Sharps Ltd, part of the Healthcare Environmental Group have developed the first reusable trolley made from recycled parts. This trolley not only meets all the operational needs of the NHS and infection control principles but achieves all aspects of recycling including reusing a valuable resource for a second life product.
Healthcare Sharps is the only UK based re-usable Sharps container system we have designed a fully robust colour coded Sharps range to deal with all aspects of Sharps and metal recycling within the NHS.
Our new trolley and wall brackets can be adapted to suit a wide variety of applications within a busy healthcare environment all at a low-cost alternative to disposables.
Healthcare Environmental Group are the only company to offer a full FM service in house delivered by our staff and our vehicles. We are able to offer a fully managed service with trained operatives carrying out internal auditing on all waste streams as part of our standard service.
Please contact us for a no obligation trial and see the benefits of using our re-usable bin range.
Healthcare Sharp Systems Ltd was established to deliver innovations in the field of sharps disposals.
We recognised that sharps containers were being unnecessarily incinerated along with their contents, and we felt there had to be a more efficient and environmentally-friendly way to manage their collection and disposal.
The result of this analysis is a unique family of pre-assembled and re-useable sharps containers. Ranging from two to 50 litres in size, these pioneering low-cost containers could save the NHS £15 million if they were adopted nationwide. As well as hugely reducing the need for plastics (thereby lowering environmental pollution levels), our robust sharps containers are fitted with RDF computer chips, enabling them to be traced from initial collection through to final disposal. They comply with all the relevant UN and BS certifications, meeting and exceeding infection control standards, and they are supplied fully assembled with a unique temporary closure method integrated into each carrying handle.
Our specialised vehicles and highly-trained staff members bring each fully-secured sharps container back to one of our specialist processing centres, where washing takes place in line with the recognised cleaning standard HTM 20/30 – approved by infection control departments nationwide. A colour-coded segregation system with uniquely-sized apertures allows customers to instantly identify which bin is for specific products:
Orange chutes are for segregated sharps waste
Yellow chutes are for non-segregated sharps waste
Blue chutes are for sharps waste contaminated with prescription only medicines (POMs)
Purple chutes are for sharps waste contaminated with cytostatic/cytotoxics
Green chutes are for sharp glass products waste.
We offer sharps bins for all waste streams including:
Cytotoxic or cytostatic sharps
Anything sharp that has or could pierced skin should be put into the correct category sharps bin.
We can advise you if you're not sure what kind of sharps bin you need. Below are a few example of items that would be required to be disposed of in the correct Sharps container:
Shards of bone and teeth
Your Sharps waste needs to be disposed of in a dedicated sharps bin of a suitable size which we will provide you with as part of your contract. From there it is reycled or incinerated or depending on the individual waste stream.
